This section is incomplete and probably even out of date. Maybe someone could fix it???
Note: $cdk_dir == toplevel directory of NCSU CDK
$cdk_dir/cdssetup/cdsenv sets the default model path to include $cdk_dir/models/simname, where simname is either "hspice" or "spectre". Under each simulator's directory, there are several "corner" directories:
To change the model path to a particular one of these directories, use the form defined in the SKILL file $cdk_dir/skill/menus/artist/setSimCorner.il You access it in Artist via the "Setup -> Model corner..." menu entry. Simply select the desired corner and the model path will be set to the correct path.
The simulators' directories also contain a "standalone" directory, which contain model files suitable for standalone simulation (i.e., they are not in cdsspice syntax).
There is also the directory $cdk_dir/models/MOSIS_reports/, which contains the raw MOSIS parametric wafer reports from which we pulled the model data.
Format of .m files:
NOTE: There must be no spaces on either side of the equal sign!
